Singing Pack feedback

"The singing pack provides clear guidelines and instructions for the class teacher to use. The CD's and the DVD are very useful and can be used seperately or together. The greatest advantage of the pack is its flexibility. The lessons and activities are easily transferrable to any topic and allows the pupils greater scope for personalisation and choice as weel as cross curricular links. It is very CfE friendly. The activities are practical and fun. When the pupils were told they were 'doing' music, there was a collective 'Yes!' from the class. The emphasis on performance is great and this was proven when the pupils performed their own raps at their class assembly. It went down a treat." Simon Leitch, Bellfield Primary School

"The ABC Singing Pack is a valuable resource to have in the classroom,
especially for teachers who are not as confident in delivering music.
Super, fun warm-ups which I have used at assembly and in the classroom.
A great resource!" Roseanne Smith, Primary Class Teacher East Ayrshire

"The children are enjoying the music and the variety of fun activities,
eg raps." Ailsa Walker, Primary Class Teacher East Ayrshire

"Children in P5/6 and in P6/7 have enjoyed writing both raps/blues. At
first some children find singing quite daunting but they
develop more confidence as they practise. I can see a real change in
them as we progress through the Journeys."
Rhona Crawford, Primary Class Teacher, Dunlop PS, East Ayrshire

"For everyone in the school who are not musically trained and very intimidated
by a music program it's been a really simple resource just to let them use and have
a great effect with the children. It's just so simple...the children can take part and make
their own music on their own level.. but you can also see the progression as the
children get a bit older. It's been really really welcomed by the staff I think first of all its a very simple resource to use everything is clearly laid out, very colourful.. the overall effect of the programme within the school is just that the children absolutely and utterly enjoy every moment.""

Rhoda MacDougall, Headteacher, Lochies School, Clackmannanshire
